I was very touched by Gurumayi ji’s talk, Food is God. I really wanted to practice the teachings Gurumayi gave.
 
I began offering a prayer before every meal. As Gurumayi guided us in her talk, I prayed "for the world to be united, for each child to receive their rightful portion of food, for each person to feel completely nourished, and know the happiness scintillating in their own heart.”
 
Since I have been offering this prayer, as I have my meals, I feel respect for food, and I experience that God is listening to my prayer. I have been experiencing great gratitude for the food I am provided with.
 
I now understand that it is my dharma, as a human being, to pray for everyone to receive food and nourishment. Donating to the charitable trust in Ganeshpuri which was initiated by Bade Baba so that the children in the nearby villages would be fed is one way I have found to give a tangible form to my prayer.

My wife and I have been reciting Gurumayi's prayer from her talk Food is God each night before we eat dinner. It has been a beautiful way to remember that Gurumayi's teachings embrace the entire world and everyone in it.
